From the June 7 edition of CNN's America's Choice 2016:
CAROL COSTELLO (HOST): Jeffrey, Paul Ryan made no bones about it. He said “what Donald Trump said was the textbook definition of racism. His comments are indefensible.”
JEFFREY LORD (CNN CONTRIBUTOR): Let me make no bones about it, Speaker Ryan is wrong, and Speaker Ryan has apparently switched positions and is now supporting identity politics, which is racist. I mean, I am astonished, I like Paul Ryan a lot –
COSTELLO: You’re accusing Paul Ryan of racism?
LORD: I am accusing anybody, anybody who believes in identity politics, which he apparently now does, of playing the race card. The Republican establishment is playing this, Senator McConnell is playing this, These people have run and hid and borrowed the Democratic agenda of playing the race card. It is wrong.
